My wife and I had fun visiting, learning the process, and trying it ourselves in making our own t-shirts. Casey was a great host, tour guide and teacher. Then we went to the store and bought a bunch of stuff for Christmas gifts. A must-visit when at Andros!

This is batik. Prints are made on material with wax. Colors are bright. The dresswear of the Bahamas. Called Androsia because it is made on Andros. A men's shirt is $45. Locals wear them when dressing up. Tourists wear them daily. Kinda like a local version of a guayabera shirt. Good quality.

This was so much fun learning to make our own hand stamped shirts. They we chose from all the beautiful odors to dye them. Neat tour and a lot of fun!

Come here to purchase colorful fabrics and clothing with original, hand-done batik designs. I had read about this place a few years ago when researching the different islands of The Bahamas, and was very happy to finally set foot in the shop with my fiancée! They have blouses, dresses, men's button-down shirts, hand-bags, t-shirts and ladies accessories, as well as... More

I enjoyed seeing the timeless process used to make this lovely fabric. My husband enjoyed the visits which is surprising-he is so not a shopper. The only gifts I purchased were from here and were well received!

The Androsia factory is set back in the woods with very friendly staff. On one tour I was taken around to see the factory by one of the workers. On a second tour, I was free to wander around the factory. Seeing the wax molds and the yards of Androsia hanging on the line is very interesting.

We traveled here on our s/v Firefly and stayed on the dock at the Lighthouse Marina. The factory is only blocks away. Email ahead for a tour and time to stamp your own or take a chance you can get in to stamp your own at a scheduled time later in the day. My husband and I were given a... More

This was a nice stop in Andros, getting a first hand tour of the batik making process. There is quite a large assortment of dies used in making the patterns. One of my impressions was how rustic the setup was as if it had been in operation just as is for over a hundred years. Also the stifling heat added... More
